So many opinions, so little time

The Guardian profiles Britain’s new wave of political bloggers who are thankfully challenging the country’s old codgers and establishment media elite:

“As I arrive, De Havilland is laughing, nearly hysterically, at a blog by Oliver Kamm, a London hedge-fund manager and member of the ‘pro-war left’ who now also writes a column for the Times. ‘Just marvellous,’ says De Havilland. ‘I was thinking of making it Samizdata quote of the day. It’s something to the effect that, well, there’s no point in denying that our involvement in Iraq has inflamed [Islamist totalitarian] opinion. Why should we deny it? It’s something we should be proud of!'”
